Ireland is Calling you to the Aviva Stadium

Take the family on a day out with our fantastic Family Fares or avail of our discounts when you use a Leap Card.

The boys in green kick off their RBS 6 Nations campaign on the 4th February in Murrayfield, with their first game in the Aviva Stadium on the 25th February against France. After a poor 6 Nations last year Ireland will be looking to continue monument after a successful November Series and a historic win over the All Blacks in Chicago.

Even though some of the iconic leaders have departed in the last number of years we still have a lot to look forward to with the young blood coming through the provinces who have already made a name for themselves in the Pro12 and Champions Cup.

DART to the Aviva 139KB

With the looming British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand, every player from each Nation will we be looking to put their stamp on the game with the hopes of getting a plane ticket from Warren Gatland.

England will be the team to beat his year after winning the Grand Slam last year and finishing their year unbeaten with a 13 game winning streak. With the likes of Sean O’Brien and Peter O’Mahony back after missing last year’s 6 Nations due to injury, Ireland's hopes of beating England and lifting the Trophy on 18th March have increased.

Aviva Stadium

The easiest way to travel directly to the ground is to take the DART. The line actually runs under the West stand of the stadium and stops at Lansdowne Road Station.

Extra DART capacity will be added before and after each game for supporters going to the games.
